Devergy is a Tanzania-based social utility company providing affordable opportunities for people to gain access to solar-powered electricity.
The service is pay-per-use, with residents obtaining credit by buying a scratch-off card and sending an SMS code to Devergy.
This form of energy is cheaper than batteries or kerosene lighting. The installation cost of the energy grid is covered by Devergy, with a ‘first connection’ fee paid by the consumer. The service has no user maintenance and is remotely monitored by Devergy for faults.
